The Drama Llama

I am a huge fan of Ella’s, so I nearly fell off my chair with excitement when I found out she was illustrating The Drama Llama.

Her illustrations are hilariously joyful and I’m so excited for young readers and their grown-ups to meet Alex and his cheeky llama.

Available though Puffin Books in March 2022.


As seen on CBeebies!

I was so thrilled to see How to Grow a Unicorn narrated by the amazing Cat Deeley in Episode 720 of CBeebies Bedtime Stories. It was broadcast on Thursday 2nd September 2021 and hopefully should be available on BBC iPlayer soon!
